Collection location: 7700 SE Stephens, Portland, Multnomah Co., Oregon, USA [Click for map]

Who: Daniel B. Wheeler (Tuberale)

No specimen available

Hypholoma fasciculare, 2 specimens found, growing next to each other. Rather large for this species in my experience. Cap and stipe are bright lemon yellow. Gills are pale gray-brown to buff-gray, crowded. Appears to be growing from roots of Bigleaf maple tree, which was cut and ground 2 years ago.


Cap yellow, stipe lemon-yellow.
Gills soft gray-brown

Doesn’t the base of Leratiomyces bruise reddish? No bruising or staining on this specimen. But I’m not a Leratiomyces expert. On MO, found several identified as Leratiomyces that appear to bruise reddish. Am I wrong? Of course, if specimens haven’t been handled, staining not evident…
